Giffords and Kelly Address Graduates

On Saturday, May 25, former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, retired space shuttle commander Mark Kelly, gave the commencement address at Bard. Giffords and Kelly urged the class of 2013 to take risks and not fear failure. Kelly shared with the audience the challenges he faced as a student and a young pilot. "I started out struggling in the beginning of my career," he said, "and ended up commanding a rocket ship into space." Giffords told the class to create, lead, and innovate. "Starting tomorrow you can change the world."
